You needn't gild the lily, offer jewels to the sunset
No one is watching or standing in your shoes
Wash your lonely feet in the river in the morning
Everything promised is delivered to you
Don't neglect to pick up what your share is
All the winter birds are winging home now
Hey Love, go and look around you
Nothing out there you haven't seen before now
But you can wade in the water
and never get wet
if you keep on doin' that rag
Looks like they are keeping the Phil interview off the web - probably hoping to sell a few magazines! - but they slyly reference it in this review of his 04/15/14 show
I would just like to say that it's not you - not by a long shot. The National Report is funny, but often too dry for its own good, and as you say too easy to mistake for the stuff that they are sending up. Whenever I post their stuff on Facebook my friends go nuts.
I did think that that putting the word satire in the subject line might help :)
Hey Thanks! That is great news! I just read an interview with him from November where he really didn't seem to want to talk about a reunion at all. Can't get to that interview today - Variety .com seems to get stuck in an advertising loop ...
I totally agree with that - I bought one or two albums after Low Budget but don't even really remember them now. And I only saw them a handful of times - all between Sleepwalker and Low Budget - but they seemed to have a pretty good truce going during those years.
God only knows what's up with those two - I wish Ray were interested in doing a 50th anniversary thing this year but that seems increasingly unlikely, unless they're planning to surprise everybody.
Hey fenario80 -The fun thing with he Kinks would be to see if Ray and Dave would hold it together. They could get pretty snarly with each other as brothers will.
Anything by the Kinks up to Misfits tour was excellent after that they went commercial in a big way although Ray still wrote some great tunes. (too much Rock and Roll hall of fame)
Lots of movies
Inside Llewyn Davis
12 Years A Slave
Dallas Buyers Club
Saving Mr. Banks
All Is Lost
Place Beyond The Pines
That's off the top of my head - they 're calling it a banner year for films made for grown-ups
I check in every few days to see what new shows have been uploaded and check what people are talking about, but mostly lurk unless a topic really calls to me or I feel I have some light to shed, which is seldom. My Dead tastes have changed rapidly - used to be a mostly early-80's guy but Brent's weird keyboard tones have driven me back to mostly early 70's and late 60's and, with people like LIA around, there is NOTHING I can contribute there. I can't stomach the Vince years anymore and have...
Whether they were required or not, it was definitely in their best interest - shows could easily have been shut down by fire marshals or by the venue if there was a safety issue, but NOBODY involved would ever actually want that to happen, because then your large, unruly crowd would be an angry large, unruly crowd ...
Fenario, what did you think of the "Naked" Let it Be that came out a few years ago? Macca's version of what he wanted heard without the extra production. I liked it. And I do not hate the Beatles' Let It Be, but the Replacements' Let it Be was a bold stroke for an album title and I played the hell out of that cassette (yes, cassette) in the mid to late 80's. Kind of scared to see them now, but saw some gloriously sloppy and inspired shows back in the day.
Jeepers, have you ever heard the Beatles Let It Be? The two songs 'Long & Winding Road' and 'Let It Be' may or may not be "dreck," depending on who you ask, but the rest of it is stripped down awesomeness. I love the 'Mats but that does not inspire me to hate on the Beatles.
Also some hope of a reunion over here, but Dave ... may be the best way to reach out to your bro is not by publicly calling him an asshole
7-18-76, King Biscuit chopped-up version but it was still mind-blowing ... still is.
Not long after an older head gave me vinyl pressings of Make-Believe Ballroom and Englishtown and I wore those suckers out
Just in case anyone here ISN'T familiar, it's a wonderful show, with an amazing home stretch, featuring personal favorite versions of Dew and Sugar Magnolia.
Phil in a very bomb-happy mood ...
I noticed that title, too, but I might bet on Skyler for the Felina role - Walt's history with Lydia is not exactly a romance -
Or maybe even Jesse? At the moment it doesn't look like he'll need rescuing, but it is a twisty show.
Don't mind the repeat at all, but that seems to make all kinds of sense for record labels - and yes I appreciate that Rhino is involved, but not in your standard record label kind of way - than to an artist selling directly to their audience.
I don't know - it seemed clear that they stopped the DL series because of piracy, so either they think they've licked that problem somehow, or they have calculated it as an acceptable loss.
But I absolutely know nothing about the cost of maintaining...
Mr Retail says: bigger profit margin has to be in the download, no question, BUT the bigger question for this organization - and the reason they canceled the first download series - is how widely available will pirated versions be?
My guess is that they will be trying to somehow gauge that.
Either that, or they have already worked it out - since this release is touted as "The first of many more top-notch audio files to come.... "
The Warner Music logo on that youtube video might go a long way toward explaining why it took so long to get this released, that combined with Rhino holding the rights to the higher quality audio recording, and possibly the rumored third party claim on the film - well, all that and it doesn't look like a very GOOD film.
Of course I'm going. This is awesome.
LA, believe it or not. There are a lot of talented and underemployed musicians in this town.
Boston has always had a thriving music scene - but not sure where it stands on your affordability scale. Certainly there are affordable areas with easy access to public transit.
There are a lot of strange questions, and you're right that the big one is why didn't they leave?
"The implications to Chechnya terrorism and Muslim lineage when they were neither practicing Muslims or even had family lines from Chechnya sends a mixed message. How could the US government possibly benefit from these events?"
hmmm .. except that they were Muslim and Chechen, and your follow up question seems completely...
A little late in the day, but thought I'd give this show a little shout out. It's overshadowed by Phil's antics on the 18th and 19th, but is pretty darned solid by 1982 standards. Fantastic Glassberg recording:
The Mikal Gilmore interview from last year is great - not sure it's worth the $12 but you can still read it online free
Jerry has his faults, but after the disaster that was Arnold I believ that he is probably the best thing that could have happened to California.
I'm honestly not that familiar with the solar panel controversy, but sure, he's more conservative than he used to be. Aren't we all?
My opinion of Jerry was formed many years ago by Joan Didion and I'm sticking with...
Ring,I called a friend who is really intelligent and has always been very knowledgeable on the current drug culture and when he returns my call if he gives me any relevant information I will gladly pass it along to you.
I'll mirror fenario80 in wishing you and your family all the best.
Ring, I don't really have anything to contribute except that I'm really sorry to hear this.
I'm not a mental-health professional, and I'm sure you've read all the same things I have about the links between psychosis and pot, and how pot today is like 1000 times stronger than it used to be. Then there are the brand new drugs like synthetic pot and bath salts. So please don't try to figure this out for yourself - there's just too many possibilities, and too many different ways to scare the...
I can't find the piece online to link to, but the new Entertainment Weekly magazine quotes Clive Davis's book as saying the Dead "demonstrated their fondness for Davis during shows by changing the lyrics of Jack Straw from 'we used to play for silver/Now we play for life' to 'we used to play for acid/Now we play for Clive.'"
The Clive line - obviously famous. "We used to play for acid"??? That is the goofiest thing I've ever heard.
I guess this makes me Team Kelly...
The last time I saw Roger, I was suddenly struck by how formal how it all is - he recruits a bunch of great musicians to play the old Floyd music precisely as written - almost like classical music. Not to say I haven't enjoyed him in the past, but I won't be seeing him again.
You'll find the same patterns in fall of 1982, when Touch of Grey, Women Are Smarter, Throwing Stones and Day Job were played almost every night.Probably getting the new songs down, as Sense said, and/or playing them for the local folks who might only see one show.
I absolutely "think that the guy's input" "should mean something," but you seem to be presenting one guy's anecdotal subjective impression as the trump to all research and statistics on the subject of gun murders?
Homicide rates and all crime rates in DC have plummeted due to a complicated system of socio-economic influences:
You're having an obvious case of "believing the one guy who told you exactly...
Converting with any of these programs should not affect the original files, but you will quickly amass a whole lot of data if you try to keep all of your original FLAC files.
dbpoweramp converts directly from FLAC to mp3 without the lossless wav step in between
There is a great little program called dbpoweramp that will convert almost anything to almost anything else. I'm not an audiophile or a tech guy, but I've been using this for years and been very happy with it.
It used to be completely free; now - they say for legal reasons - they charge something like $40 for a lifetime license. It truly is a one-time charge - just make sure you keep the registration info where you can find it in your e-mail - I'm up to my third or fourth consecutive...
Well no doubt my fondness for the Scarlet-Fire is because I was there. Fire's not as extended as it could be, and Jer makes a mighty mess of the lyrics, but the post-Scarlet jam is a pretty sweet 5-6 minutes.
It is a beautifully sung Terrapin - Jerry was in good voice that week (see 09-17-82 Morning Dew ...)
Excellent recommendation, and a funny thing (at least to me): I was AT this show and I listen to the second set all the time. It's one of my all-time favorite Scarlet-Fires, one of your better-sung Terrapins, and hands-down best ever Touch of Grey. Guess I better pay a little more attention to those first sets ...
Thanks, and I take back something I said a long time ago - there apparently are some GREAT live versions of Dupree's Diamond Blues ...
Are there any GREAT live versions of Stagger Lee ...

I've been wondering why they started with THE most circulated show. Don't get me wrong, I love this show and this particular version of the band (well, okay, except maybe not Ozzie so much), but it doesn't seem to bode well for how much first-rate material they might actually have.
I was listening to a 1978 UCLA Pauley Pavilion (Westwood CA) show from 1978 and Bob inserts "and it's T for Studio City," which I found pretty funny as it is a good distance from Westwood. Maybe their hotel was in Studio City ...
Wasnt in the mood for a 71 today, but...

Some minor stage sound problems and some inherent extra-heterodynamic interference from off the FM. -- perhaps renders this reproduction ever so a tad bit fuzzy, but try not to pay it mind.
Yours truly was in attendance and it was a great show from the first note until the last which was somewhere around 4:00...

'This show possesses the atmospheric highs and the abyssmal lows that often accompnay the Grateful Dead listening experience. The lows are moments of real sloppy playing and probably the absolute worst...
That is hilarious! For one thing, it actually dovetails perfectly with my own "bad trip" mentioned above at this same show - I thought everyone was dancing too fast, and even tried to slow some of them down! Perhaps buffalo7478 and I consumed the same questionable refreshments?
For another, we went to the Stones show the next day and IT WAS terrible! Who schedules an outdoor show in Buffalo in late September? The band complains all day about it being too cold to play. Recordings...
The Bad Trip - this is the show where I lost my mind for about 1.5 hours and came to during Looks Like Rain.
The crew was late driving from Bethlehem, PA the night before, and the show started about an hour late. Had they only started on time ...
Very nice - lots of homework for me~!
9-02-1979 appreciates the nod, as it is tired of always being overshadowed by the MSG shows ... also
3-15-1990, released as the "Terrapin Station" CD, is a big, crowd-pleasing thumper. Among "later" versions, I've always loved this one.
Do you guys have an actual system to report abuse? I don;t know what it is, so I just searched for your most recent post ...
I sure would like to see this racist drivel expunged from the Grateful Dead forum ...
Listened to the '70 first thing this morning, but thanks for the 87 reminder. I know that not everyone shares my feelings, but I love this show. Jerry seems to be having a grand old time, and especially rips on Morning Dew.
Great big sets (by 80's stanadards, anyway), exceptionally well played. I'll even forgive them the "Good Time Blues," just this one time.
